If you love poker runs, you won’t want to miss the 8th-annual Big A$$ Poker Run in Kansas City, MO. Read on to learn everything you need to know about the Big A$$ Poker Run taking place this year. 

What Is the Big A$$ Poker Run? 

The Big A$$ Poker Run is an annual motorcycle event in Kansas City, MO. This event raises money for Toys for Tots and several military charities in the area. 

The Big A$$ Poker Run follows the flow of typical biker poker run events. All participants will meet at the Worth Harley-Davidson to register. Then, you’ll have a list of stops to travel to on your motorcycle throughout the greater Kansas City area. 

At each stop, you’ll pick up a playing card at random to add to your poker hand. Once you complete the final stop, you’ll have a full hand of randomized cards that you can display as your final poker hand. The best poker hands will win cash prizes. 

This year, the 8th-annual Big A$$ Poker Run is offering the following prizes to participants:

  • First place: $5,000
  • Second place: $600
  • Third place: $400

If there are any ties for first, second, or third place, the event organizers will split the prize money between the tied winners.
